Another option is to replace one bat at a time, keeping one in place at all times as this keeps 1/2 the door covered--ok for work around but is a problem that needs resolved properly.

It happened to me too, and more than once. The first time I managed to find it in the car. The next time, I didn't even realize it was missing, and found it on the floor beneath my desk, in half. I tried to put it back in, but it doesn't work, and the clasp certainly does not work at all.

Well, I gotta say, when I first saw this post I didn't think I'd have this problem but just today I experienced just what was described. Luckily, I was at home at my kitchen counter taking my batteries out and was watching closely and just when I got em out I noticed the SD card cover was lifted up. I know for a fact it snapped into place as it was kind of hard to get it closed after installing the card to begin with. I took some clear tape and taped mine down to avoid this problem in the future. I'd like to thank you for your post as if I'd been out in the field I may have overlooked this problem and been out a card. I'll suggest it to others as well even if you haven't had the problem yet. Better safe than sorry.

Like you Jmebd I was sure I had mine locked in place but I wasn't as lucky as you and I did loose my $100 topo map card. I reported this issue to jungle ghost and Magellan so hopefully Magellan may change the lock in future production and advise existing customers to put a bit of tape on the retainer cover after it is locked in place as an extra precaution to keep it from sliding.

I am glad my advice was helpfull to you and hopefully others that read this post.
I think this would apply to all ex models that take Micro-SD cards.

I would like to suggest that anyone using a Micro-SD card in there EX-10 unit put a piece of electrical tape over the slot after installing card.

( the card slot retainer doesn't lock in place very well )
or at least in my case

I just bought an 8 GB Jungle Ghost topo map three weeks ago and had it installed without tape over card slot and I lost the card when I was changing my batteries I didn't realize right away and although I had a good look where I did the exchange I couldn't find the card.
